Unfortunately, the Illinois Choirs’ tour bus broke down, and they will not be able to sing for us this evening (May 20th). We wish them a safe journey home, and hope to have them sing for us in the future!
Pilgrim Church welcomes the combined choirs of Illinois College, under the direction of Dr. Abby Musgrove, for a unique program on “Earth, Wind, and Fire: Songs to Inspire Awe, Appreciation, and Action.” Over 60 singers from the Illinois College Concert Choir, Women’s Chorale and Chamber Singers will perform music from a variety of musical styles and eras, including “Earth Song” by Frank Tichelli, an African-American spiritual, “God’s Gonna Set This World on Fire,” and a Japanese piece dedicated to the victims of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami. And, of course, several songs by a certain band from the 70s and 80s. There will be something for everyone at this concert!
When: Saturday, May 20 at 7 p.m.
Where: Pilgrim Congregational Church UCC
